January 27th & 28th.
Join Cornell Cooperative Extension of Broome County, the Cornell Vegetable Team, Harvest NY, the Lake Ontario Fruit Team, and the Eastern NY Commercial Horticulture Program on January 27th for a remote GAPs training. Instructors will walk growers through how to conduct a risk assessment on their farm utilizing the seven areas of farm food safety. Participants will gain hands-on experience in creating a traceability system for their farm, as well as learn about packing house design with food safety principles guiding placement of equipment and suggested materials. Students will also learn about how to train their employees related to food safety and understand what they will need to implement on their farm in order to pass a third-party food safety audit, such as GAPs.
The price is $35 for a farm to attend both days, or $10 to join on the second day for the farm food safety plan writing session.
